Anritsu develops base station simulator for Korean eCall

Anritsu Corporation has developed for South Korean eCall base-station simulator/signalling tester MD8475B and eCall Tester MX703330E software as a solution for testing emergency response systems. This option can evaluate an in-vehicle system (IVS) supporting South Korean eCall(*1) over LTE (uses NG-eCall standard).

The eCall is made immediately after an accident to the emergency response center, PSAP (*2 ) and sends detail about the accident. Early accident report and dispatch of emergency rescue personnel where n required is expected to help save lives by reducing deaths from serious injuries. South Korea is making fast progress in development of its eCall system, which will be mandatory in all new vehicles.

Product Outline

Anritsu’s Signalling Tester MD8475B is a base-station simulator for simulating the mobile network configuration used by eCall. The eCall Tester MX703330E software emulates the communication sequence between the eCall IVS and PSAP center.

Adding this developed South Korean eCall option to the MX703330E supports performance of the South Korean eCall function test and end-to-end voice evaluation defined by ITSK-WD-19003 (*3)  over a simulated LTE network.

The spread of the LTE-Advanced communications system is accelerating adoption of larger-capacity in-cabin eCall telematics units and Anritsu is the first in the business to support all-in-one gigabit LTE simulation and NG-eCall IVS evaluation with its Signalling Tester MD8475B for both speeding-up and cutting test costs for telematics
